Parker, ALT is NOT the HTML standard for tooltips, the TITLE tag is. ALT is meant for users who do not want to load pictures but would still like to know what it shows. TITLE works flawlessly in Mozilla, Opera and IE. If you want to be sure that everything works you can of course use TITLE and ALT.
